But we should always bear in mind that the anti-Trumpers are thought police, not our moral superiors.
Does that mean that anti-Obama's are thought police too , or does it only cut one way ?

Our American Cold Civil War
Try reading this. It's depressing, but it perfectly encapsulates the phenomena you describe, and what is going on between the two sides of the American divide.
It also doesn't offer much hope that we'll find our way out of this very happily either.
But it does offer a rational explanation. When we have this discussion, we aren't even talking the same language with each other anymore.
So you don't see that if a woman, doing just the same job with the same productivity as a man, automatically earns less, as an an injustice?
Then there is the side to do with attitudes of sexual dominance which leads to crimes like rape, you don't see the injustice there?
These same things if applied to minorities are injustices so surely applying the same to nearly 50% of the population is an even greater injustice.
Donald Trump, through his comments and publicly portrayed lifestyle, clearly embodies sexist attitudes.
In a position of power, he will enact things which are based upon those attitudes and will perpetuate the injustices.
That was what was being protested.
Trump has said, and is attempting to enact, some fairly unjust things. The protesters concerns are validated in Trump's recent actions.

What wasn't a given in his speech was that you shouldn't view Progressivism as merely a country-wide problem.
They want the whole planet.

I have been a Trump Supporter since well before the 2016 elections. I do find the comments about Admiral McCraven, have crossed a line. The President owes the Admiral a public apology or I am looking for a new candidate to support in 2020. May God have mercy on my soul, as we scraped the bottom of the barrel during the last election.
